The château de Lacour d'Arcenay, built in the mid 17th century on the ruins of a fortified house, is particularly harmonious with its U plan surrounded by water moats. It is composed of a main house framed by two corner rectangular pavilions which are completed with two wings ended by a round tower. The round towers and the 15th century cellars probably date from the ancient fortified house.
The castle outbuildings form a remarkable 17th and 18th century grouping composed of a dovecote with 800 holes, well-structured barns, a wash house, stables, cowsheds and a housing buildingoffering a nice view on the castle.
